Only a few minutes' drive from OR Tambo International airport, and airport transfers and breakfast included in tariff. Much less expensive than larger hotels nearby. Generally quiet and staff really nice. Occasional noise from aircraft (it is near an airport after all) but that was of little concern.Nice garden, but I did not use the pool: winter in Johannesburg can be described as chilly at best. Have stayed there before and would stay there again in similar circumstances.

We stayed here for 2 nights before and 1 night after our tour and left feeling we had known Alistair & Josie forever. The service was amazing, we were picked up very early am from the airport, checked-in and in our room by 6 am. The room was well appointed with everything we needed and was spotlessly clean. Safari Club is close to the airport-though we found it quiet at night-and will always be the place we stay in Johannesburg.Everyone was very friendly and helpful.
there is also a nice bar which works on the honesty system

Stayed here 2 nights before and after doing a 12 day tour of southern africa. As my experience in all African hotels the staff was very friendly and anxious to assist. The hotel arranged for the transfer and picked us promptly with a well marked sign. The first room was nice, 2 twin beds, tv, ac, good size bathroom, tea & coffee for the AM. The AC didn't work great, but we were Ok. The room had a safe but we couldn't get it closed, so we did not use it. The beds are HARD, 3 of us from the tour stayed there and we all thought the same. They have a small honor bar, indoor/outdoor seating. Good options for beer, wine and spirits. A TV located in the bar. They have Wi-Fi throughout, although definitely a stronger signal in some places. They have a small restaurant with a prefix, preset menu. We ate dinner there the first night and it was good. The morning breakfast buffet with hot eggs to order was perfect to start the day. Our second night there at the end of the trip was even better. This room seemed to be a slight upgrade from the first, bigger room, bigger bathroom. Beds were just HARD. AC worked much better. This time we also had the opportunity to meet the owners, who could not have been nicer. They even suggested somewhere else to eat when the preset menu did not work for us. In addition to suggesting a place they even helped us find a ride both ways. You may think its noisy being by the airport but with the exception of a few hours in the afternoon on our first visit wr barely noticed and plane crossing overhead and certainly none while we were trying to sleep (I paid special attention to those times just for this review). All things considered if you are looking a night or 2 near the airport definitely check out the Safari Club SA.

P.S. after my travels ended a snow storm kept me delayed for 2 days in Jo-burg, the airline put us up 1 night but for the second night I chose to return to the Safari Lodge. At this point, it felt like home. Once again the owners were bery helpful, setting up airport transfers and a personal tour. As you can tell from my review I cannot say enough good things about this hotel!!

We started our round trip from Johannesburg with a stay at the Safari Club. A beautiful place with lodge style rooms and a lovely garden. The owners and staff are very nice, helpful and friendly. Before our return flight we stayed there as well and it felt like home away from home. Again nothing was too much trouble. Thanks for the kind hospitality! We will certainly come back! Highly recommended!

Although the Club is near the OR Tambo international airport, the place is amazingly quiet. The rooms are nice and spacious, and the breakfast and dinner well stocked and well prepared and enjoyable. The gardens are also well kept.
